I'm just wondering how you keep the pH that high. Do you dose with kalk and do you have a sump? As mentioned before a small tank is susceptible to parameter sudden fluctuation.

I have a 10 gallon sump. No dosing it fluctuates a bit but not much

What test kits are you using? Getting phosphates from .25 to 0 in 2 days would pretty much take a 100% wc

It was 150% over 2 days. 25% every 4-6 hours. I use api for nitrate nitrite ammonia and phosphates. For everything else my lfs let's me use his red sea test kits whenever I need too. Like the last 3 days lol. I do 25% w/c weekly sometimes more so usually I only check traces biweekly if not monthly since my corals at the moment are minimal.

That explains why you have a perfect parameter and corals are feeling uncomfortable.
